Description: Cozy Restaurant, located in the center of Messina in the prestigious Via dei Verdi a few steps from the Cathedral of Messina, and not far from the famous University of Law and Court. Refined, elegant and comfortable, great for events, business lunches and romantic dinners, distributed in three air-conditioned rooms for a capacity of over seventy seats. If you're planning something special, delicious and inviting, make yourself comfortable, we think Salvatore Ficarra. The chef and his kitchen staff will delight you with the scent of fresh ingredients carefully selected with a wide choice of dishes. You can also combine a good glass of wine to choose from a wide variety of reputable labels, Sicilian, Italian, French and German. Recommended and pampered by our staff of room. Refined attention to customer service a traditional magazine, creative and imaginative designed to satisfy the desires of the more unusual guests. The ace in the hole? Be artisans of the kitchen and masters of the art of receiving. Art recognized by hundreds of couples over the years have entrusted the chef Salvatore Ficarra organization and implementation of weddings, gala dinners, buffets, cocktail reinforced, lunch and dinner to work, of course guaranteeing his presence as a chef, director and director of the banquet.

It really made me surprised here in this place. I did not wait that quality, when we reached to the restaurant.
The place, itself is very simple. Even very bad interior design. But the food are amazing. We've got tuna carpaccio, artichoke as starter. For second meal, we've got risotto and some local fish. Plus Sicilian wine.
We loved all we have had.

A very nice and stylish restaurant in the centre of Messina. The atmosphere is beautiful, the food is good and the dishes are very abundant. The quality is very good. Not too much expensive, around 35€ per person.

Called in for a drink on a "port day" off a cruise, and were persuaded to stay for lunch. A platter of fresh fish including tuna steaks was presented for our approval, so that's what e opted for. Maybe the squid was a bit chewy, but everything else was excellent. Charming service from family members,who were all keen to try out their limited English! An added bonus was that we missed the one shower of the day!

We go there for the fish. Very flavoured starters, fantastic grilled fish (we had grigliata mista). Good wine selection, smart atmosphere. Very professional staff and chef. Not the cheapest restaurant, but deserves (about 40 euros each).
